Sign Number: 9th Keyword: Enthusiasm
Element: Fire Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac and it represents both the phase that follows Scorpio’s intensity and the opposition to Gemini’s sometimes frenetic communication of data. Sagittarius represents the shift to the universal level of the Zodiac. This fire energy looks upward away from social turmoil to yet another kind of clarity, that of perspective. My key word for Sagittarius is “enthusiasm” because it conveys the energy that coalesces from true universal meaning. The “universal” level means that the fire energy is focused on the Universe rather than the personal fire energy (Aries) or the social interaction (Leo.) Sagittarius’ mode is “mutable” meaning that it represents the adaptability that comes with anticipating new experiences. The symbol of Sagittarius is the centaur, the half man, half horse who shoots his arrow into the air as he contemplates the stars.
